These maple honey glazed pork chops and most definitely the easiest and best tasting pork chop you’ll ever have. A family favorite for sure!
Whoa. It just occurred to me that this weekend ends summer vacation.
I sorta have mixed emotions about the whole thing. I’ll miss staying up until 2am reading, sleeping in and having late breakfasts with my girls. But I am looking forward to the cozy nights by our fireplace in our new home, leggings, bulky sweaters and Pat’s hunting trips. Awww-yeah hunting trips! 😉
When it dawned on me that this might be one of our last grilled dinners, I was a little sad. Who am I kidding? We grill all year round! We are so those folks, and by ‘folks’ I mean the cool-hip-still-look-20-something-folks, who stand outside by the grill in the dead of winter with our scarves and booties on… knee deep in snow!
But it’s a good thing these chops don’t need a grill to happen. You cook them just the same in a 350 degree oven, and you get the same result… just minus those purty grill marks.
To Make This Grilled Maple Honey Glazed Pork Chops You Will Need:
- boneless top loin pork chops
- kosher salt
- black pepper
- real maple syrup
- spicy brown mustard
- dark brown sugar
- worcestershire sauce
First, start by adding 3/4 cup real maple syrup and 1/4 cup honey into a sauce pan.
Next add in 2 tablespoons ketchup.
Then measure and add in 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard.
Next 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar.
Lastly, add 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce.
Lastly, give it a quick stir and then bring it up to a boil, stirring often.
Next, pour 4 tablespoons into a small bowl and the rest of the glaze into a larger bowl.
Next, grab the pork chops and set them out to bring up to room temperature, for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat your grill to 400 to 450°.
Then season with plenty of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Next, lay the seasoned pork chops down onto the hottest part of your preheated grill grate and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
Flip and repeat for another 2 to 3 minutes. Remember to adjust the times if you’re using a thinner chop!
Next, grab the glaze (saving the little bowl of glaze for later) and brush it on the pork chops. Then flip/brush and repeat, for the next 8 minutes OR until the internal temp reaches 145°.
Be careful not to let the glaze burn or the pork over cook.
Finally, once the chops are fully cooked, let them rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Then grab that little bowl of maple-honey goodness and drizzle it over top. Because you can never have too much glaze.
The glaze is sweet and tangy, leaving these maple honey glazed pork chops unbelievably delicious.

THANK YOU in advance for your support!
That glaze sounds perfect — on so many things! Sweet and salty and easy to whip up. Yum!
These look amazing! Love the photos!
Such a bummer that summer is drawing to a close! I could use about 5 more months of it at least! Your pork chops look SCRUMptious! I’m always looking for a new way of preparing pork chops and the maple honey sounds wonderful!
Pork is one of my absolute favourites so these sound right up my street!
YUM! Pork chops paired with sweet flavors always works well, doesn’t it? My only suggestion is to use bone-in chops because they add flavor. When the weather turns to autumn, try this Tyler Florence pork chops recipe if you don’t want to freeze your backside off tending the grill in cold weather. It is my favorite pork chops recipe.
these look SERIOUSLY heavenly!
Looks soooooo good!
These are the perfect flavors for pork in my opinion. Just lovely!!
these look amazing and i LOVE the maple honey flavor you got going on and with the mustard too! i just had pork chops tonight but they certainly weren’t as good as these, i’m sure of it!
I need more pork recipes! These look so good! I agree, let’s keep the grilling going!
it looks so delicious !
These look soooo good! I must try!
Gorgeous as always! We have pork often here, so this will totally get made!
Mouth-watering! There is no other way to have pork chops than glazed and grilled. Yay to year-round bbq!
These are some awesome looking pork chops! Love the flavors!

I recently discovered your blog and love it! I am always on a mission to make homemade food. We tried this recipe last week and it was delicious!
Delicious looking dish Laurie. Loving your blog too, it’s not full of cake!
While I consider myself a pretty damn good cook, pork is one of the things I’ve never quite mastered completely – it usually comes out tough and tasteless, and I swear off making pork again. Then, I give in, try another recipe and get similar results. Well, then I found THIS recipe… so juicy and full of flavor! A true homerun recipe with the hubby and all three kids. It will definitely be my “go-to” pork recipe. Thanks for helping me finally master the other white meat!
I am obsessed with these chops and glaze! Have made them three times since discovering the recipe this Fall. Twice on the grill, and last night with super thin chops that I broiled in the oven (without the glaze b/c I was afraid it would burn under the broiler), then doused with the glaze when I took them out. Sooooo good! 🙂
Thanks so much! I LOVE those chops too. I’m not sure what it is about that glaze but it’s soooo darn good! Thanks for taking the time to come back and leave a comment!
I used your recipe about 30min ago and it was amazing the thing that makes it so nice for me is the smokey flavour you get from the maple syrup
If I am not using spicy brown mustard, can I substitute with either normal yellow mustard or dijon mustard? Appreciate your advice.
These look so amazing! Ive got my chops out and the glaze is ready to go. Will report back after dinner!
Very yummy recipe!
Thank you, Lora! I’m glad you like it!
Really yummy recipe! To make a really juicy grilled food you’ll need a good grill. Personally I prefer gas grill.
14-18 minutes for cooking time is way too long unless its a very thick cut. I use a meat thermometer and pull the chops off at around 140F for juicy delicious medium-rare chops.
